Babcock says Nick and Pav are maybes

Coach Mike Babcock just said that there's still a possibility that Nicklas Lidstrom (lower body) and Pavel Datsyuk (foot) could play in tomorrow's Game 5. Neither practiced today.

"They didn't practice," said Babcock. "Both guys are feeling better. We'll see what goes on in the (Wednesday) morning skate and go from there."

Would Babcock give those players a rest considering his team's 3-1 series advantage?

"If they're ready, they're playing," said Babcock.

Lidstrom is a six-time Norris Trophy winner, who is one of the final three for that award this spring. Datsyuk is a finalist for three awards -- MVP, Selke and Lady Byng. He won both the Selke and Lady Byng last season.

Bruce, Datsyuk is also a nominee for the Pearson this year.

I still think we won't see Pavel for the rest of the series. Especially leading 3-1 and headed back home. Wings will err on the side of caution.
